4 stars Toubabou confirms that the Quebec progressive scene has many hidden gems: this record belongs to this category. You have to be mentally prepared here to receive an overdose of infernal Afro-Latin rhythms: the TONS of percussions, combined with a funky bass and fast drums, contribute to make this record a very original and jaw-dropping exhibition of impossible rhythmic section performance. Lise Cousineau's delightful female lead vocals are among the craziest & most excentric ones i have ever heard: her heavy breath G-spot tornado performance on "J'Freak Assez" makes me want to hear more...WOW! That's very sexy. Many parts remind a complex Frank Zappa's music, featuring George Duke on Fender Rhodes, especially on the "Ambush" track, even containing an ultra pleasant winner ambience made of dynamic brass arrangements. The slowly but surely accelerating rhythm outrageously loaded on "J'freak Assez" is a real success. The track "Pylône" really has similitudes with the Italian progressive artist Il Baricentro. The tracks sound quite varied, but they mostly remain in the fusion territory. Maybe only the first and last tracks are a bit out of place.

Rating: 4.5 stars
